Description
W. Ben Hunt traveled throughout the Midwest, living with several Native American tribes and absorbing their customs, wisdom, and culture. In this book he provides step-by-step instructions and exact dimensions to make Sioux ghost shirts, Plains Indian shield, box traps, Inuit snowshoes, and more. From making rawhide to putting the finishing touches on a pair of moccasins, beginners and seasoned woodsmen alike will enjoy making the tools and camp equipment that were used for centuries. "Native American Survival Skills" is a remarkable source of information about the Americans who first pioneered self-sufficient living. In it, there are lessons for all of us today.

This book, like all of Hunt's works, teaches an appreciation for the natural world around us, a view that he learned from his vast experiences with Native American tribes. Wile this is n instructional book on survival skills and campcraft, Hunt's deep understanding of Native American culture is very much present, and readers, too, will appreciate the crafts that create and the materials from which they were made.
